Polar Bears: A wildifeHD Exclusive!
Live streaming and High Definition

Polar bears are now living on the shores of Hudson Bay waiting for the first cold days of winter. Once frozen, the Bay will become a highway to the Arctic where the bears will hunt ringed and bearded seals.

WildlifeHD is living on the tundra with the bears, and along with SeeMore Wildlife Sysytems, we've built a different sort of highway. It's a digital highway that delivers live and HD video of the beautiful bears to the world.

We've connected a very tricked-out Tundra Buggy ™ to the Internet. Through a 45mb wireless link, you can now see live streaming video of polar bears on the National Geographic website, and you can see our 1080p HD polar bear footage at the Apple HD Gallery.

It's all part of a larger effort led by Polar Bears International to increase awareness about polar bears. Frontiers North's Tundra Buggy® Adventure provides access to wild polar bears and Buggy One. Lisa, Eli and Daniel (the frozen Zatz family) are living on Buggy One along with our production and uplink equipment.

Are Polar Bears OK?
Polar bears are beautiful, and we might still have them in fifty years if we act now. The ice they walk upon is disappearing along with the common sense of our political leaders. Climate change is impacting the bears. Learn more about the polar bear story here.
